  • Ainsworth State Park at mile post 35 on the Historic Columbia River Highway is mostly a picnic spot. It is east of Horsetail Falls. And has about half a dozen picnic tables in a wooded area. There is ...  more »
  • This is one of the better parks I've been to. The tent sites were walk in sites but the walk is no more than 60 seconds from the parking area. The bathrooms and showers were very nice and comfortable....  more »
  • We were first time campers in an RV last week and our first stop was Ainsworth State Park - a pretty, small park with a great location! We spent three nights there, changed lots after the first night ...  more »

  • Clean but very noisy and very small. Strongly suggest to pick a drive through site. Be warned you will hear trains all night long. Also do not use Highway 30 approach if you are bigger than a tent trailer. Road is extremely narrow. Also no pre-warning for turn into campground.
  • Beautiful campground.staff keeps the property clean. But Bathroom and showers are not together. So shower, then walk outside to go into the toilet side to brush your teeth. I thought that was odd. And if you like trains, this is a campsite for you. Every 5-10 min at daylight hours. Night time maybe once an hour.
  • It has nice size sites ,hot showers, clean restrooms and the grounds are well kept. Also close to highways 84 and historical route 30 . Just minutes from the waterfalls. Beautiful area of the country. The price was very reasonable for a full hook up.
  • We got there without reservation and got a full hookup spot for 3 nights. People are really friendly, very clean, super good and hot showers. Great for hiking!!
  • Highly recommend the tent spaces. There are only six, so reserve early. They were nestled in the forest with a decent amount of space between them and a short walk from the car. The bathrooms are best I've seen anywhere with hot water showers. -- Tent camping in an RV space.-- If you are a light sleeper, the trains might bother you. We spent our first night in an RV space near the road side (B03; it was the last space), and the trains going by many times a night kept one of our group up. In the tent spaces, we were further away and the trees probably muffled the noise.

Where to stay in Portland

For easy foot access to Portland's best shopping, dining, and entertainment, stay in or around the downtown area, connected to the rest of the city by light rail. This compact and busy part of Portland contains the highest concentration of hotel rooms in the city, allowing you to explore options ranging from boutique properties to big chains.
